What's in the Works

Cleveland Public Library is transforming a series of open lots near historic League Park into a vibrant new community library branch. The proposed Hough Branch will be a library of the future while respecting the history of the Hough neighborhood.

FACILITIES MASTER PLAN - FUTURE VISION

It’s recommended that this branch be replaced with a new facility in a location on major transit lines serving the area long Hough Avenue. While it could potentially serve a much larger population than it’s defined service area its proximity to the Woodland and MLK branches make it appropriate to remain a Neighborhood Branch.

What's There Now

The site is currently vacant (South side of Lexington between 65th and 66th Streets).

FACILITIES MASTER PLAN - CURRENT STATE

The Hough Branch is poorly located to serve its community, remote from transit lines and away from active neighborhood centers. In outreach sessions it was found that many residents thought the building was closed and went to other nearby facilities even if Hough was their local branch. The layout of the building is not conducive to the library’s service model goals and has numerous maintenance issues.
